HOB fOR 29 Gal

I"m giving a friend my empty 29 gal tank and they will be needing to get a new filter to go with it. I prefer canister filters myself but their set-up is better suited to a HOB filter. Any suggestions for brands and flow rates would be appreciated. Thanks!

I would go with an Aqua Clear 200.

Yeah, i'd go Aquaclear for sure. a 200 or 300 would both work, though a 300 gives quite a bit of flow....good for messy fish, not great for CO2 injected, planted tanks.

Another vote for AquaClear brand. They last forever, too!

Don't buy Whisper filters. They're better than nothing, but only just.

I just ordered an Aquaclear 70 (the old 300) for my 29 gallon Tanganyikan tank.
60 gallon - Neolamprologus cylindricus, Tropheus moorii "Lufubu", Lamprologus brevis, celebes rainbowfish, two odd plecos
125 gallon - Lamprologus occelatus, Tropheus sp. Red "Moliro", Tropheus sp. Black "Bemba", Eretmodus cyanostictus, one Julidochromis dickfeldi "Midnight"
